Pre-heat oven to 450F.
In a large bowl, combine the hash browns, 1/2 cup cheese, and salt + pepper. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Divide the hashbrown mixture evenly the muffin cups. Use your fingers to pack them tightly and shape them into nests or press down with a small measuring cup.
